FESTIVAL and live music veterans The Embers first formed in 2005 as a six- piece "roots infusion".
The band re-formed last year, and has performed in venues across Tasmania.
Band members Michael Attard and Kilty Salter said the live music scene in Tasmania had grown over the last 10 years and had experienced a peak in the last two.
They said this had been helped by a strong group of hard-working local bands, a growing number of live music fans, support from local venues, and support from sound production professionals that assisted the affordability of live music production.
"In Launceston there is a very healthy original music scene - in the last decade it has seemed to take off," Salter said.
"There are people who go there to see you, some who don't normally see bands but stick their heads in to check it out and have a really good time."
Attard said behind-the- scene promoters of original music, who helped to make live production affordable, were a huge benefit to the scene.
"There have been a lot of people over the years who have really fostered original music in and around different venues," he said. "Merujan Fendoner provides a lot of the sound equipment, he hires it out, but it is still affordable."
For up-and-coming bands trying to get into the scene, Salter said it was important to network and make connections.
"Watch the bigger bands and talk to them about their experiences," he said. "Anyone who is a muso is going to give you a helping hand."
